A lively and informative guide to a year of wine enjoyment and appreciation from acclaimed wine expert and blogger Tyler Colman, a.k.a. "Dr. Vino."

In A Year of Wine, award-winning educator Tyler "Dr. Vino" Colman, whose wine blog was hailed by Food & Wine magazine as "one of the seven best," views winter, spring, summer, and fall through the glass of his favorite impact-resistant stemware, pairing each month with its perfect ports, Pinots, and bubblies -- and offering good value recommendations for them all. Throughout, Colman reminds readers to try to pair their pours with context, which is wildly underrated when it comes to enjoying your favorite bottle. And while people tend naturally to drink lighter, more refreshing wines during the warm months and heavier, more serious wines during the winter months, Colman takes the seasonal approach a step further by offering innovative recommendations and enlightening facts that will allow readers to impress their friends for twelve months straight.

Is there a perfect wine to serve with chips and salsa on Super Bowl Sunday? Which bottles will help you drown away your tax- day blues without blowing your new budget? Colman answers these questions and much more as he pairs wines with each season, occasion, and moment. Recommending thoughtful and affordable wines for special celebrations and everyday enjoyment, offering tips on beginning a wine collection or spring cleaning the one you have, exploring how to drink with the smallest possible carbon footprint, and explaining how to maximize your wine experience when you dine out, Colman makes wine easy to understand and, most important, to savor.

Colman also shares the secret gems of his favorite wine tourism destinations -- where to find the best wine shops in Paris, which Portuguese vintners still crush grapes with their bare feet, and how you can take a ten-tasting-room tour with one stop in a tiny Oregon town -- and turns to some of the country's top sommeliers for their take on wine appreciation as well.

Perfect for both seasoned wine enthusiasts and oenophobes, A Year of Wine is an innovative approach that will encourage readers to drink outside the bottle.

Top citazioni

  • When to go: A visit in April can beat the heat and give you a jump on the tourists (watch out for Easter, though); head for the second half of September and you may hit the harvest festival during traditional feasts of San Mateo.

  • OREGON PINOT NOIR: The delicate cranberry note of Oregon Pinot is a great pairing for the Thanksgiving meal. Try one from Domaine Drouhin, such as the excellent Laurène ($$$$) or Hamacher for a splurge. See Pinots under $25 for a value.

  • There’s even a consulting company in California that promises its winery clients that the wines it advises on will achieve a certain score from critics, plus or minus a point or two.

  • However, wine style matters. For example, don’t lead with a humongo Napa cult Cabthat’s the kind of wine you have to work into.

  • Domaine Drouhin, Domaine Serene, The Eyrie Vineyards, and Sokol Blosser, to name but a few, could easily fill an action-packed weekend.
